Klay Thompson scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Game 4 vs. the Thunder with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.
He was held to four points in the first half and got into some early foul trouble, but his 19-point explosion in the third quarter nearly got the Warriors back into the game. It obviously wasn't nearly enough in the end, as the Warriors were outscored 24-12 in the fourth. If the Warriors are going to take away any positives from this nightmare showing, it's that maybe Thompson will be able build off this momentum for Game 5. May 25 - 12:38 AM

Klay Thompson made just 5-of-17 shots to finish Wednesday's home victory with 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

Klay's defense on Russell Westbrook was exemplary, however, and he could have had a bigger game if the score weren't out of hand -- Golden State led by as many as 33 points in the fourth quarter. The Warriors shot 50.6 percent from the field, including 46.4 percent from downtown, and they still haven't suffered consecutive losses during the 2015-16 season.
May 18 - 11:50 PM

Klay Thompson scored 25 points during a 108-102 loss to the Thunder on Monday, adding nine rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It looked like Klay was going to have a monster game with 19 first-half points, but he fizzled out late. Coach Steve Kerr put Thompson on Kevin Durant more often in the second half, which may have been the culprit after the break. The Warriors only had 14 points in the fourth quarter and 42 points in the second half to set 2016 postseason lows. Thompson being a two-way player will be a big part of his postseason role, but his DFS output will depend on his scoring. His nine rebounds are his second-best total in a postseason game for his career, as well.

Stephen Curry highlighted Klay Thompson's defense after Wednesday's Game 5 win against Portland.

Thompson scored a game-high 33 points on Wednesday, but Curry was more impressed with his defense. "I just have to say something about Klay Thompson. That dude had probably the best series he's ever had. Chasing Dame [Lillard] all over the court and exhausting all his energy and scoring the way he did. I hope that doesn't get lost. I just had to say that." Thompson's defense has long been underrated, so it's nice to see his teammate give him the credit that others may not.

Klay Thompson lit up the Blazers for a game-high 33 points on 13-of-17 shooting on Wednesday, hitting six 3-pointers with two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Stephen Curry's return freed Klay to do what he does best -- move without the ball. Thompson has scored the third-most points off cuts this postseason, and he's ninth as a spot-up scorer, two areas that open up for him with Curry handling the ball. His solid defense is often over-looked but it won't be when Golden State meets their opponent in the Western Conference Finals.
May 12 - 1:52 AM

Klay Thompson scored 23 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 42 minutes during an overtime win over the Blazers.

He had a quiet first half with only six points on 1-of-7 from the field. Thompson was a big part of the comeback charge with 11 points in the third quarter and he was on the court for the ridiculous overtime run. With Stephen Curry back, Thompson's upside is not nearly as high in DFS.
May 10 - 2:29 AM

Klay Thompson scored 35 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers against the Blazers in a Saturday.

It's just his third 30-point game of his postseason career -- his second came two games ago. Thompson scored 24 points in the first half, which marked his best half of this postseason. His upside in fantasy will drop once Stephen Curry (knee) comes back, but he should still put up numbers regardless.
May 7 - 11:23 PM

Klay Thompson scored 27 points on 7-of-20 shooting to lead the Warriors to a 110-99 win over the Blazers in Game 2, giving Golden State a 2-0 series lead.

He also added three boards, three assists and five 3-pointers, with 20 of his points coming in the second half. Thompson is really stepping up in the absence of Stephen Curry (knee) and was coming off a personal playoff-high of 37 points in Game 1. The Warriors are in firm control of this series, so they may be more cautious with Curry's return which could allow Thompson to post some monster numbers moving forward.
May 4 - 1:26 AM

Klay Thompson scored a personal playoff-high 37 points during Sunday's Game 1 win vs. the Blazers, making 14-of-28 shots with seven 3-pointers, five boards, five assists and two steals.

Portland had no answer for Thompson defensively and he's now the first player in NBA history with at least seven 3-pointers in three consecutive games. Stephen Curry has a "slim" chance of playing in Game 2, but a Game 3 return is more probable. With Thompson and Draymond Green carrying the Warriors to a blowout win in Game 1, the Warriors can afford to be extra cautious with their ailing MVP.
May 1 - 6:12 PM

Klay Thompson and the Warriors obliterated the Rockets in a series-clinching win on Wednesday, led by Klay's 27 points on 10-of-14 shooting, including a 7-of-11 mark from downtown.

Golden State built a 30-point lead mid-way through the third quarter, fueled by a 3-point barrage from Thompson, and they won by a final score of 114-81. He's the first player in NBA history to make at least seven 3s in consecutive playoff games -- if nothing else, tonight's eruption confirms that the Warriors are a scary team even when one Splash Brother is in street clothes.
Apr 28 - 1:27 AM

Klay Thompson buried seven 3-pointers on his way to 23 points in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Rockets, giving the Warriors a 3-1 series lead.

The bad news for the Warriors is that Stephen Curry could miss some time due to a sprained knee, but that will open the door for Thompson to have a larger role in the offense. Thompson was 8-of-15 from the field and added five assists, two boards and two steals, and he will look to help the Warriors advance to the second round with a win in Game 5 on Wednesday at Oracle Arena.
Apr 24 - 7:00 PM

Klay Thompson struggled in Thursday's 97-96 loss to the Rockets, scoring 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting from the field with eight rebounds, two assists and two steals.

With Stephen Curry (ankle) on the shelf, Thompson's owners were expecting a lot more from him tonight. He missed all seven of his 3-pointers, breaking a streak of 31 playoff games with at least one trey which was the second longest active streak behind Curry (41).
Apr 22 - 1:02 AM

Klay Thompson matched his playoff career-high 34 points during a 115-106 win over the Rockets on Monday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Who needs Stephen Curry (ankle) anyway? Thompson made 15 free throws in this win, which is the most he's had in any NBA game. He was really good off the dribble in this game as more of a play-maker for the Warriors. If Curry isn't ready to play on Thursday, Thompson will get another big chance to produce.
Apr 19 - 2:02 AM

Klay Thompson made 4-of-14 from the field for 16 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

His defense was the key in this game while his offense wasn't quite there. Thompson was scratched up on his left shoulder after the game, but he's fine. He made his 100th 3-pointer in his playoff career during this win. If Stephen Curry (ankle) sits out, expect to see a ton of shots going to Klay.
Apr 16 - 7:21 PM

Klay Thompson scored 16 points with two rebounds, two assists, one block and four 3-pointers against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

He made it up to 276 treys this season, which ranks third all time only behind Stephen Curry's last two seasons. Thompson had a really nice season and he should be making one of the All-NBA teams for his terrific scoring output. He'll go toe-to-toe with James Harden in the first round. Thompson scored 20.7 points per game in his three games against the Rockets this season.
